The trail will extend from the current westward terminus at George Angell Drive in the City of Plattsburgh to a point approximately 2.15 miles to the west at Reeves Lane in the Town of Plattsburgh. This section of the trail is ready for advancement since it will be constructed on public sector property, extending through the Plattsburgh City School District High School property, the SUNY Plattsburgh Field House and sports complex and westward across City of Plattsburgh property to Reeves Lane. With the views of the river and especially the imperial dam, there is a desire to keep the trail near river.
